Delaware River Report / Conditions September 20, 2013

Mixed bag out there yesterday, with some folks having lots of luck, and others seeing really picky, annoying fish. Regardless, there were plenty of bugs to be found, on every river. The fish were not too keen on the bright sun on the Main, but there were some steady fish rising on the lower West in teh heat of the day. Tricos did fall later than usual (noon), and those out in Methodist Pool seemed to see the majority of them. Today we are looking at more of the same – bright sun, and Indian Summer weather – highs around 77! We will see what that does to the fish today, but it should make for good evening fishing, as there is not supposed to be a large temp drop once the sun goes down.
